Hypothesis is a collaborative annotation tool that enables instructors and students to have conversations in the margins of digital texts.
Hypothesis supports sentence-level note-taking, critique, and conversation around class readings, news, blogs, research articles, and other digital texts. Instructors can create Hypothesis-enabled readings in Blackboard Learn to make learning more visible, active, and social with annotation.
